Pros: This application helps MP3 files to be speeded up. Problem with speeding up audio is that the pitch goes higher too. But this speed changer application helps keep the pitch the same while compressing the time line. MP3 Speed Changer enables you to speed up audio files (MP3, WMA, OGG) - podcasts, audio books without changing the pitch. Batch processing feature makes MP3 Speed Changer good tool for audio listeners and authors who want to save time.
Speeding up the files is a very simple process through the easy to use interface of the application. Choose the files to be converted, choose the tempo to be speeded up to. Files can be speeded up by up to 50% of the original speed. By default the converted files are stored back to the same folder as inputs but one can choose a different folder. Then it is just a click on the convert button that converts the files. Thereafter files just have to be downloaded into the favorite gadget of yours and its all set.
The faster tempo should not cause any problem with intelligibility of the tracks as mind does move faster than the speed at which one is able to speak naturally.
Podcasts, audio books or other audio tracks can be speeded up or even slowed down as required either to save time or to make the intelligibility better. Drag & drop of the files to the workspace is supported as is support for MP3, WMA and OGG formats.
Cons: Speeding up does create a little bit wah-wah kind of underlying sound. This may take a little getting used to. This does not cause any intelligibility problem though.
Overall a definite 3 starrer.
